Gotta say I'm not exactly surprised that a Liberal Party of Canada cheerleader such as Ernest has no respect for womyn considering what we've learned over these past few weeks.

though dk taking the moral high ground and then taking it to the gutter makes it a win for Ernie by my definitions of interwebs.

dempsey_k wrote:It's wrong to make it seem as if social ineptitude is anything but correlated to misogyny considering how rapey frats are, but socialization definitely reduces problems because most women and girls you grow up with are more than willing to educate your ass, unlike the exasperated activists the gamergaters target online who don't have the time of day to explain things over and over to drydick randos.

She moved up and out of the technical group and into sales.
Her technical background was very useful in that regard.
But ultimately, you're both right, in her case:
1. She found coding to be a very individual and ultimately lonely working experience and wanted to do something that was more social in orientation as far as executing tasks as a team.
2. She was getting hit on by everyone, married or otherwise, in the technical group. She is an attractive woman and the stories about how awkward the advances were could probably be incorporated in a book.
Shoulder massages, poems left under keyboards, all kinds of junior high crap. It was harassment, and she recognized that, but more often she had to explain why to the other coders because they were so socially inept that they didn't even realize.
Moving to the sales group where people had a modicum of social intelligence instantly ended the unwanted advances.
I've met some of these coders at her x-mas party. It's like Big Bang Theory but creepier. She said it was weird but she was repulsed and yet felt pity for them at the same time.
